Apple tackling AirTag stalking concerns with these changes to Find My network

By Chance Miller

The company reaffirms that AirTag “was designed to help people locate their personal belongings, not to track people,” and these forthcoming changes aim to make that clear.

First and foremost, Apple acknowledges that it has been “actively working with law enforcement” on AirTag-related requests.

Based on this work, Apple believes that “incidents of AirTag misuse are rare,” but that “each instance is one too many.”

It says that it has “successfully partnered” with law enforcement on these cases to trace an AirTag back to a perpetrator.

But with all of that having been said, Apple says that it has been working with safety groups and law enforcement officers to learn more about how AirTag and the Find My network can be further improved to prevent unwanted tracking.
